The Chemical Brothers – Further
Released in June 2020, ‘Further’ is the seventh studio album by The Chemical Brothers.
Back when people were still figuring out what electronic dance albums were supposed to be, The Chemical Brothers worked out a durable and recognizable formula, and they stuck with it: dancefloor bangers up front, woozily expansive psychedelic tracks at the end, big-name collaborations wherever possible.
On ‘Further’ however, the album as a whole sounds like a return to the old school “take-you-on-a-journey” albums common in early-’90s techno. There’s a sense of awe to these tracks, down to titles such as “Escape Velocity” and “Swoon.”
‘Further’ was nominated for Best Electronic/Dance Album at the 2011 Grammy Awards and saw worldwide success.
